Just as it is starting to warm up for spring here in Potchefstroom we are starting to pack up to leave for home. But today was one of those great, warm, sunny early spring Sabbaths that we remember from last year. Since we will only have one more Sunday here is South Africa and because some asked me why I did not post more photos on Facebook lately, I took lots of pictures and here are most of them.
Elder Hentunen was busy making an appointment with a young man who is going to school here but is from Bloomfontein. He could come because president Kwaikwai wrote a letter to his employer saying how important it was for him to have Sunday’s off and it worked. Sister Kwaikwai had Â her littlest one with her today as did brother Komatso.
President Kwaikwai joined in for a couple of family photos
Elder Wild and brother Gomolemo talked to sister Nthabiseng in the sunshine while sister Merriam in the yellow dress talked Lydia Mokate.
It was so nice outside that sister Thato Kujane moved her Sunday School class out into the playground. I was lucky to catch the Colour Ikageng sign as a backdrop. Notice the ‘u’ in colorÃ¢Â€Â¦British you know!
In Primary boys will be boys when a camera is aimed their way. Sister Lerato Kujane is cleaning the keyboard which she is learning to play.
Sister Mogapi has her hands full while sister Kea smiles for the camera
Adam Lebona taught the small YSA class while Dolly Ratema is taking her chair back to the class room after a warm lesson in the sun.
I am not sure what Adam was thinking about when I took his photoÃ¢Â€Â¦he seems to be meditating. Sisters Thulo and Williams did not give me a smile in this photo but made up for it in others.
Nthabiseng talks to the elders and Sisters Kea and Williams give me a big smile with the elders in the background.
Brother Gomolemo gets his picture snapped while in the background sisters Neo, Ratema, and Kruger are talking. Their turn was next.
Sister Antoinette has a great smile and so does sister Ratema.
The young man seems more interested in his chip than the beautiful young lady in front of him. I wanted one photo of the the Priesthood today and so here they are.
Elder Wild is the designated keyboard player for PHÃ¢Â€Â¦that is he starts the selected song when he is supposed toÃ¢Â€Â¦the keyboard does the rest. The young man seems to have another chip – if it keeps him happy and quiet I am not going to complain.
President Kwaikwai thought sister Kujane’s idea was so good that he moved his Aaronic PH class outside. We wanted a photo with us and brother Sidney RobbinsÃ¢Â€Â¦hopefully we will get one with him and his wife next week. She had to work this one.
Sisters Dolly, Neo, Shavonne, and Kea were joined by elder Wild. There is that great Jacque smile again.
The elders with Mary and her new scarf. Brother David Rampai seems to be checking phone numbers with Shavonne Kruger while sister Kea’s attention is somewhere else.
Brother Gomolemo shows off the keys that he thought he had left in the chapel which was now locked up but I had moved them before locking everything up. Sister Thulo and her grandson on the way out to the parking lot. She still did not give me a big smile but he did.
Ã‚Â Sister Brummer really, really does not like me to take her picture but I told her I really need a good one before we left. She had me promise it would be the last oneÃ¢Â€Â¦I had my fingers crossed when I said yes!
Â Â We drove the Krugers home so Mary could give Jacque a piano lesson. I wanted a family photo and then brother Kruger took a picture with us and the rest of the family. It was a really good day for taking lots of pictures.
